Thank you for letting us stay in this beautiful place. Was far more than we expected, as it was grand and obviously designed for people more accustomed to such levels of comfort/design (something more simple would have suited us fine too!). But we embraced our home for the 5 days, and loved it - such a treat to sit in the hot tub after a long day exploring the area, and look over the amazing view.
Just a couple of points
- considering the quality of the other amenities, it may have been preferable to have a more quick/easy-to-use BBQ (the Egg is indeed top of the range, but it takes a couple of hours for it to heat up properly to use).
- although we were informed of the fire ban, we were told it would be fine to use the BBQ. not sure this was the right advice, especially as it was not gas.
Arrive here fatigued from work, and left fully recharged! The beautiful views from this house, the luxurious amenities, and the easy accessibility from the house to all the key sights was ideal. We spent a week here doing day hikes, a little skiing, and enjoying the delicious food the many restaurants offered.
The house is perched on the Crown Range Ridge just above Arrowtown with awesome views of Queenstown and Lake Wakatipu so we enjoyed it from the living and whilst in the outdoor hor tub! We were also able to use the kitchen to organise breakfast and a couple of dinners.
Highly recommended include taking a 2 hour hike to Arrowtown on the Tobin Track, dining at the many good restaurants at Arrowtown which is a lot less crowded than Queenstown, hikes around Wanaka, and visiting the numerous vineyards. One of my favourite wine comes from thia region and which is understated is by Valli.
Absolutely will be returning here again.
